Get organised using CloudCal.
This quick guide will help you efficiently manage your appointments, tasks and events.
Magic Circles are clock-faces
When you look at the month view in CloudCal, you'll see circular graphics for each day. This is the Magic Circle. It’s basically a clock-face.
The Magic Circle shows you instantly how busy you are and when you have free time.
All-day events are shown with full circles.
Magic Circles show everything happening in a 12-hour window, (9AM to 9PM) by default.
You can configure your Magic Circles to show any 12-hour period, or the full 24 hours.
Experience our Smart Bot (English only)
One innovative feature of CloudCal is the ability to create events using natural language, which helps you save time and work more efficiently.
Events can be entered by voice or by manually typing them in. Smart bot will interpret your request, fill out all the necessary fields such as due date and time, and create your event automatically. To get you started, here are some examples:
"Lunch with Martin tomorrow at 1 pm"
"Cal dad every Sunday at 5pm"
"Do tax return on October 1st at 9am"
Smart Bot can understand due dates, times, and recurring events.
